"We accept the bad terms of these contracts, and we don't act like a unified sector," said Nancy Wackstein, Executive Director of United Neighborhood Houses of New York. "All of us need to say, no, we're not going to accept this contract because we know we're going to fail." Instead, she said, if one group declines there are plenty of others lining up to accept the bad terms.Carol Kellermann, President of the Citizens Budget Commission, stressed that the nonprofit sector needs to do a better job of marketing itself to show how it helps solve societal problems. "'Nonprofit' is just a tax status," she said. "It doesn't describe what you do to help people get out of need." It doesn't help that media outlets rarely cover the sector and focus mainly on scandals when they do, many said.
